Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
Ive had my Nikon Coolpix since summer 08 and its pretty much brand new. It was working fine until now. My computer broke and i had to re install the Nikon disc. In the time being, i tried to install the disc on my laptop and the camera wouldn't download pictures. When i plug in the usb to the camera to download pictures, it doesn't go to a screen on the camera and it doesn't do anything. It wont download pictures on any computer.The little green light comes on and that's it. The screen is black. I thought that a menu is supposed to come up when you plug in the usb cable.I haven't been able to download pictures and its really frustrating. Can anybody help me?I'm desperate.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer.

Give the lense side of the camara a few moderate slaps while moving camara from bright to dark obgects back and forth. the shutter gets stuck and doesn't respond to changing light. that's why outdoor pictures are usually too bright and indoor pictures are black.

FIND THE USB OPTION IN YOUR CAMERA MENU AND SELECT MASS STORAGE OPTION, THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CONNECT & VIEW THE PHOTOS LIKE A REMOVABLE HARD DRIVE OR JUMP DRIVE

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing
the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the
Turn the camera ON.
Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.
Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.
In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.
You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)
Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.
Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.
Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.
Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.
Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.
Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to auto focus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
